Treating Uneven Skintone Part III

I am a skincare manic, I love to pamper my skin with lotions & potions, trying to reverse the damage I have done to it during my Teen years. Yeah I know now how important it is to wear sunscreen now, but back then, 10 years ago I didn’t even know that such things exist. Thanks to beauty Blogs and advertisements , we all know that sunscreen has to be an essential part of skincare routine.

So those who are with for some time now, would know that I did “Treating Uneven Skintone” Series last June. I visited a dermatologist to consult certain skin issues like acne, tanning, dull & uneven skintone. On her recommendation I changed my routine and that removed some tan and made my skin lot more even toned. You can read about my experience HERE

This time I got a chance to visit “The Skin Center” and meet Dr.Sirisha Singh and discuss the issues I still have. My major area of concern is darkness around mouth, it looks even more prominent when I apply certain shades of lipstick, and that’s the only place where some foundations start to look ashy !

The Skin Centre is a leading skin treatment consultancy located in the heart of South Delhi is offering unique, scientific skin care therapies to help you rejuvenate and revitalize your appearance. Dr Sirisha Singh, the founding member and partner consultant of The Skin Center, is highly qualified with 8 years of work experience in the United Kingdom. 

I met Dr. Sirisha Singh today (29th Jan) and discussed about the skin issues. She talked to me about any medical history, health issues I have. What I liked the most was that She was very patient throughout the discussion and listened to each and every skin problem I had. She observed my skin under UV light to check as to how photo-damaged my skin is. As per her observation I have tanning around my mouth , some part of my cheeks and forehead.

I spoke to her regarding chemical peels and my apprehensions about getting one. She suggested me to follow a skin care regime (prescribed by her) , wait and see results for 2 weeks and revisit her. If the problem still persists , I can always go ahead and get a peel done. To be honest, I would always avoid such peels and would love to see results from the prescribed creams/ ointments only.


My New skincare routine would be –

Daytime – Cleanse face thoroughly and apply sunscreen/ or a day cream with sunscreen. Reapply after every 3 hours or twice during the day. Always apply a sunscreen minimum with SPF30, 15 minutes before stepping out of house, even if its raining, cold or cloudy weather. Since I spend lot of time in from of computer, I should reapply sunscreen after every 3 hours. I am using Ansolar Sunscreen.

Night time – Since I have acne issues, I have to clean my face using Sebamed Foaming Cleanser, wait for 10 minutes till the stretchy feel subsides. Apply pea size amount of EGA Cream (has retinol) all over my face , wait for 2-3 minutes, follow up with Kojivit Gel (lightening of dark spots), apply only on pigmented areas & wait for 2-3 minutes and lastly Apply Rejuglow Vitamin C Serum (20% Vitamin C serum) all over face and go to sleep!

As per Dr Sirisha; adding “Retinol” to my skincare routine would help in getting rid of / minimizing appearance of fine lines & dark spots. Like always I will have a “Before and After” picture in my next post (after 2 weeks).

This is my current photo, you wouldn’t be able to see much unevenness but its more visible if you see closely.


Please remember that this post of for information purpose only. Through such post I share my experience ! Each person has different skin type, and thus treatments will also differ from person to person. I don’t want to look “Fair” , all I want is an even complexion.
